Update 22/08: The Nintendo Versus Twitter account has now revealed how exactly this tournament will work. The three-day event titled "Original Class of '64" only includes fighters, stages, and items from the first Smash Bros. outing on the Nintendo 64. The further you advance, the better the spirit you'll win.

The artwork for this particular tournament is also based on the original N64 Japanese box art:


Original Story 21/08: Do you have fond memories of playing Super Smash Bros. on the Nintendo 64 back in the late '90s? Well, you might want to keep an eye out for the next Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournament taking place later this week.

Starting on 23rd August and running for a total of three days, Ultimate will be hosting an event featuring fighters exclusively from the original Nintendo 64 game. If you did play this title many years ago, you'll likely remember the 12 characters.

The original roster included: Mario, Donkey Kong, Link, Kirby, Fox, Yoshi, Pikachu, Samus, Luigi, Ness, Captain Falcon, and Jigglypuff. Based on the picture above, though, it might just be the core group.
